The truth dies when it goes against the media’s agenda.

One of the biggest stories during the pandemic was the death of George Floyd and the riots and looting that took place following.

Now Tucker Carlson just showed how some very powerful people covered up key details of his death and how much damage they did to the US when they did it.

George Floyd was an ex-con who died while in the custody of Minneapolis police on May 25, 2020.

Leftist politicians, media personalities, and celebrities were quick to pronounce that he had been murdered.

Violent and aggressive past glossed over in the media

At the time, Minneapolis Police union President Bob Kroll said that Floyd’s “violent criminal history” needed to be remembered and that the protests over his death are the work of a “terrorist movement.”

But Floyd’s violent past was conspicuously sanitized from much of the reporting centered around him.

His widely televised memorial service violated Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz’s (D) coronavirus restrictions regarding funeral services and religious gatherings.

Many were outraged because while regular people were forbidden from gathering for funeral services of their own loved ones, 500 people attended services for Floyd, who had been convicted of multiple robberies and violent assaults.

Tucker Carlson, in his latest show on the social media platform X, noted several inconsistencies between public perception that Floyd died under the knee of former officer Derek Chauvin, who’s currently serving more than 40 years in state and federal sentences, and what actually transpired.

Pointing to new testimony, Carlson claims that it is now “conclusively” known that Floyd was not murdered by Chauvin.

Prosecutor: The medical examiner placated the mob out of fear

In a deposition, Hennepin County Prosecutor Amy Sweasy alleged that an autopsy found no indications that Floyd was murdered.

Sweasy alleges that the medical examiner who performed Floyd’s autopsy, withheld and lied about the true cause of death out of fear of public reprisal. 

The examiner also allegedly said that the autopsy results contradicted the public’s narrative. 

Sweasy said, “He said to me, ‘Amy, what happens when the actual evidence doesn’t match up with the public narrative that everyone’s already decided on?’ … and then he said, ‘This is the kind of case that ends careers.”

Given that information, Carlson said, “In other words, George Floyd, according to the official autopsy, was not murdered. He died instead of what we used to call natural causes, which in his case would include decades of drug use, as well as the fatal concentration of fentanyl that was in his system on his final day. So, this was not a killing, it was yet another narcotics OD in a country that records more than 100,000 of them every year. The medical examiner clearly understood that and, in fact, articulated it.”

Carlson added, “In other words, everyone lied about it from the very beginning. The people who knew the truth hid the truth and allowed the revolution to proceed.”

A new report has revealed that the total insured property losses incurred during the George Floyd riots, could be as much as $2 billion.
